Where Are We Going

Where are we going, where does it end-
this life we are given few words to append;
Does time own our beings,
when life close the door?
And can none be certain,
what we came here for?

Where are we going, has anyone been-
to send word of something, instead the unseen;
Will we find the others
who've gone on ahead?
And not leave forever
for those who are dead?
Patti Masterman



Wonderfully And Fearfully Made

Creation's left its markers
Imprinted on the being;
You have to know just where to look
To know what you are seeing.

The hollow down my back
Is where the sperm divides the seed,
The navel on my stomach,
Where the embryo must feed.

The space between the eyes
Is the animal body's clock,
It watches for the sunlight;
To the pineal gland, it talks.

The dreamers dream is paralyzed,
The autonomic does it,
So that we won't leap up then
And much too fully trust it.

The blackest center of my eye's
Where humankind is tied;
The place we look to prove we're true,
And also, find the lie.

We once were water creatures
And inside the womb, had gills,
That now are ears and cheeks
And they enable us to hear.

We're maternal mammals
And we make our babies milk,
So they'll have the perfect food-
And seldom, do we spill.

We hide our stash of eggs
Deep within the body's cave;
And each one is more precious,
For amounts of time we gave.

We have the longest childhood,
More than other forms of life-
So we can learn to live in peace
Avoiding the strife.

Psalm 139: 14 (New International Version)
'I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.'
Patti Masterman



A Dream For You

A dream for you
And one for me;
A mermaid's blue,
A symphony,
A secret house
Inside a tree
The dreamworld's full
Of company.

At night we go
To places rare,
Where no one knows
That they are there;
And every dream
A hidden stair,
That takes us to
A new somewhere.

If only dreams
Could overlap
The sleeping seams
Within our nap,
And precious streams
Not on a map
Then other lives,
We could unwrap.
Patti Masterman



An Ironic Ending

Why don’t death certificates tell the truth,
In plain english without all the medical flourishes
Exhibit A: He died of a broken heart-
The only woman he ever loved went away
And he never heard another word from her again.
It is medical fact a broken heart kills you;
A slow, lingering death it can be too.
Exhibit B: She died of an empty nest-
All her offspring flew away finally;
Then she felt useless and slowly just ceased existing.
One day she lay down in bed, fluttered her wings
Once feebly, and just quit breathing.
The white coats might call it emphysema,
Or pneumonia or something fancy.
As a child I always wondered if boredom
Deaths claimed a lot of youngsters;
Since I always seemed to be alone desperately
Searching for something to hold my attention.
Just for fun I would sometimes hold my breath
For as long as I could, trying to keep my chest still.
But I always started to breathe again.
I would imagine how my dead alter ego would appear.
I never reflected that once dead, you don’t get to enjoy
The grief- stricken show going on all around you-
Finally the center of attention!
Main attraction- front and center!
And you don’t get to experience any of it.
Yes, it seems clear that in the end
I will die of irony.
Patti Masterman
